Contacted Asus enquiring about system DSP (EQ) and Bluetooth - system DSP in ROG Phone2 does NOT support Bluetooth! So the system DSP in a high-end phone costing near £1000 at the back end of 2019 doesn't support Bluetooth when every crappy third-party EQ app does? I'm astonished, and it puts an end to my interest in ROG Phone 2.
zerocool, 30 Aug 2019no fm radio? wtf!I have the RoG Phone II Tencent Version and it does have FM Radio.
anyone knows the difference between the tencent 512 variant with the global 512 variant? does it have the same cellular band? i've done research and cant see a complete specs of the tencent 12/512 variant
Hamze, 29 Aug 2019What's the diffrence between tencent version and classic version?🤔Tencent version sports 128GB storage with 8GB RAM, whereas the non-asia version should have 128/256/512GB storage options but with 12GB RAM.
I hope it has a system DSP. The plethora of third-party EQ apps are truly awful, and I would expect it to have a built-in EQ like the magnificent MaxxAudio in OPPO Find 7
zerocool, 30 Aug 2019no fm radio? wtf!you could buy a fm radio + tv tuner accessories.
yosef, 29 Aug 2019are you shure its not support ldac?
Sorry I could be wrong because I check several phones. They didn't complete the specs for BT Audio on the Huawei Mate 10 Pro which supported like HWA and LDAC. I wish reviews talk about that. Hopefully it supports LDAC because this would be the best featured phone so far.
Especially combine with Fiio BTR3 because it support Aptx low latency. This is the downside of BT audio is that there are newer tech being release. You end up upgrading until every issue is fix. I have to wait for the next Walkman with BT reciever like BT 5.0 and supports many codecs.
maybe you can add a card slot for that rog 2 phone and extend 1tb rom.. in my opinion
Love the Community, 28 Aug 2019Is this Bluetooth DAC something that the Audiophile gods would approve?
Until every single ... moreTo be honest if your talking person who wanted options. I use all kinds of things. Read "Note II" jack is widely available that time even Iphone 3 or 4 if I remember correctly. Don't get me wrong I still do wired once in a while like using Sony Walkman NW-A55 or Schiit Modi Multibit (USB to phone, priced at $270).
I admit Bluetooth DAC during the Note II generation is horrible until I rediscover Fiio BTR3 (under $70) and later use Sony Walkman NW-A55 ($230) as a DAC through LDAC (wireless). I'll never rely on those headphones with built-in BT. I like my wired Sennheiser HD 600.
Also audiophile is an expensive hobby to begin with and so far phones' DAC gotten poor in quality since Apple is only one with better DAC and they removed it. All my stuff listed is entry level stuff so you have to spend around $800+ for better audio gear. I notice my friends started buying PMPs again like the Sony Walkman NW-ZX300 ($700) or even the revived Ipod Touch. Others would replace phone's DAC with an external DACs like the AudioQuest Dragonfly.
Anyway I can say NW-A55 is amazing as a bluetooth DAC or USB DAC. My friend is amaze when he compare it to the LG V20. When I get my RoG phone 2 I will use the NW-A55 as the USB DAC. Only downside with RoG phone 2 it doesn't support LDAC. I would have to use USB DAC or SBC. Fiio BTR3 can support AptX HD
Anonymous, 27 Aug 2019There is a thing called bluetooth DAC. I use this since Note II days because I need ways to ... moreIs this Bluetooth DAC something that the Audiophile gods would approve?
Until every single bluetooth headsets are BT5.0 and has all the aptx tech for around $100, I'll still fight against the injustice for removing the headphone jack. The jack has it all while many bluetooth headsets don't have it yet.
AverageUser, 27 Aug 2019I get what you want to say.
I paid 460 Euros for S10e.
The IP68 was what sealed the deal, ex... moreFor me decent camera is just enough i am not photographer on photo enthusiasit either.
And for IP68 i really dont care. In present world any phone is at least splash resistant which is great enough. Any phone can sustain a bit of rain if you carry it in pockets and have a proper case on it. I carry a book case.
By the way no IP protection cover your guarantee so if even an IP69k device gets water damage or dies you have to buy new one or pay expensive repair.
by the way no IP resistance apart IP69k which have only 5 phones in world including newly released DOOGEE S90. Protects against any other water than plain one.
No chloride, salt water, baking oil etc.
And even in case of plain water its only in calm conditions. This excludes swimming or diving with your phone.
To me most flagships have tons of cool awesome features which are useless for 90-95% of population due to a well known fact nobody knows how to use them properly and nobody would.
